EO is for entrepreneurs only, and that is part of what makes us unique. There are many business groups out there, but EO is the biggest and best dedicated exclusively to the entrepreneur. Launched by entrepreneurs, and lead by entrepreneurs for over 30 years. EO also has non-solicitation policy. Our members are here to learn and to better one another, not to sell. EO is truly a peer group by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs.
Member fees comprise both Global and chapter dues. Global dues are currently US$3088 (plus a one-time US$2500 initiation fee) and are prorated based on the fiscal month you join. Local dues for the EOIE chapter are currently US$3125 which are also prorated based on the fiscal month you join (plus a one-time US$750 initiation fee).
We encourage you to review all of the EO benefits and learn more about the EO experience. Our global website is eonetwork.org/inlandempire or you may contact our Chapter Manager, Linda Medina at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Entrepreneurs like you are hard at work in your local area, creating exciting chapter learning and social events, as well as special off-site activities, where you can hear and share big ideas, invest in the health of your community and become a better leader. The number of events a month vary by chapters, but most chapters range from 2-4 events per month.
The more you participate, the more value you get! If you participate in Forum, your commitment is once-a-month for an in-person meeting.
Each year, your chapter will conduct an annual requalification. If you sell your business or dip below the requirements, we have options for you to continue in membership.
Members of EO must be the owner, founder or majority stakeholder of a business earning a minimum of $1 million in the most recent fiscal year. Venture-backed companies must have either privately-raised funds of at least US$2 million or publicly-raised funds of $5 million, and a minimum of 10 employees.
EO is about helping you be more strategic in how you spend your time. EO is about helping you. Our mission is to help members obtain greater business success and enriched personal life. And the more you put into your membership, the more you learn to be effective and find balance in all facets of your life.
What is the value of a new connection or idea that completely changes your business? What are you willing to invest in yourself, and your growth as a leader? The ideas, support and connections you receive will more than cover the amount you spend. You’re paying to better your business and better yourself as a leader. More than half of our members have indicated that they are “members for life,” so clearly others find the investment worthwhile!
